's base. where is mitt romney today? springfield, virginia right outside of washington, d.c. northern virginia, that area, is really obama territory. and here we are in virginia beach. this is not obama territory. and i think one thing that shows that is actually we're here at at the farm bureau live. the band that will be performing next here because this is a music venue is the zac brown band which performed at the republican national convention, something that struck me. but they're trying to cut into each other's margins. president obama did pretty well in virginia beach narrowly losing virginia beach county to john mccain. this is a strong veteran area which normally goes for republicans. mitt romney has to win here and president obama is here trying to make sure that it and virginia are out of his reach. >> so when you say mitt romney has to win here, what do the newspapers say so far, how have the polls been looking and where do they stand today? >> well, right now what we're looking at according to our latest cnn poll of polls, which is considering a lot of polls and averaging
. all right, that's great. thank you. >> it's possible to forgive poor mitt romney for feeling a little overshadowed by his running mate. after all, it's hard to compete with a guy who can catch fish with his bare hands while at the same time promoting a budget that would rob kids of their free lunch meals. how much of mitt romney's campaign belong to mitt romney? you can't help but wonder if mr. romney is just going along for the ride. joining us is tim dickinson of "rolling stone." his new article is in the current issue of the magazine and an excellent read it is, too. tim, i'd like to show you something before we delve into your article. just take a listen to this, tim. >> the only thing that limits you is your god given talent and your own effort. we need to have that dynamic economy returned. do you that by growing the economy and getting people a hand up, not a hand out. teach a man how to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> right. sow doesn't believe in handouts. he won't even feed the fish. he wouldn't feed pigeons in central park for fear they'd be
point lag. is romney letting this election slip right through his fingers? and importantly, why did he dial back his tax cut yesterday? if i don't know what romney's tax plan is, then i don't know how he's going to reach the middle class. in response to mirant last night and my it is pleasure with what mr. romney said, a key very senior mitt romney person calmed me today and says that mitt misspoke on dialing back tax cuts. and this senior person said mitt would like a mulligan and you know what, following beings, i'll give him a mulligan for now. but he has got to stay on message. and that importantly includes next wednesday's crucial debate. it could be his last chance. let's bring in our guest to comment on this. we have harry melver, steve moore oig and phil reducer. steve, i went off the rails and went off hfr-i was so angry at this wall street news story story. romney tempers tax plan, dialing back his tax code, suggesting that he's going to remove tax deductions from the middle class. he didn't talk a bit about take home pay and lower tax rates. and frankly, i was angry and conf
community backers of romney and ryan are saying right now, and these guys are not tea party people, they are not idea logically opposed. they are worried about an inco n incompetent presidency, his stimulus package not working anywhere near his expectations, goes out and does something economically dumb, a mandate known as obamacare. neil: these echoes this service they are getting nervous in the business community. even as americans by their consumer confidence figures are getting more optimistic. >> and average americans may be getting more optimistic, looking at be round table, ceo survey, they are not, they look at economic and employment trends. neil: when your boss is not optimistic that should alarm you. >> that ceo survey index is like an economic indicator, is the lowest it has been since 2009, that is right after the financial crisis. that is not confidence among the ceos, that is why they are worries about 4 more yores of president obama and that is why they are freaking out. neil: charlie thank you, charlie gasparino, much more on the issue, mitt romney may be down in t
because he won the hispanic vote over 35%. he got 40%. mitt romney's at about 20% to 25% right now. he's too far behind. and states are going massively for the president. >> what polls do you read that you actually think are right? if you looked at rasmussen, you'd think it's a jump ball race. >> i do think it will be very close. i think talking about three or four electoral votes, i think we're also talking about those eight states that are critical. the ohios, the colorados and nevadas, floridas. but img t think the president i moving forward. >> the latest polls actually show president obama has a big lead in states like ohio and florida. do you believe those polls? >> they move around, but i do think that he got a bump after the democratic convention. no republican has been elected president without winning ohio. so i think that's -- mitt romney will have to rebound. and i see the debates where he's a good debater. he won 16 out of 20 republican debates by his own count, but i think he did well. >> i'm going to make this hard for you. if you were advising romney right now, what wou
politicians wld rather talk about anything but thecy,ndhe w looking at right there, mitt romney, seems to be exhibit 1 in daniel henninger's argument. how does mitt romney turn it around and laser focus on the economy and make the sale next week in time? >> wes goi tbed bee le are feeling a little bit better about thei lives. you know, they've paid off their credit card debts. their 401(k)s are back where they were. you kn, as steve ratner jt showed, their housing prices -- values are goi up. you know wha i wld ds - yo, john mccain very, very successfully made government seem foolish by picking out stupid earmarks. you know, the sgest argument i've seen mitt romney m i , yo know, the government -- the government's regulatory apparatus has bogged down. you know, i would have him go at stupid regulation tricks. you know, there are all tse silly regs that have been paed, u kn,n tls thoused to vote for or vote against, joe. and i think that he has to run against the federal government at this point rather than against the economy. >> willie? >> john? sorry. thout joe was gngoay th i ree wi
romney is going to do just fine. right now the numbers show that mitt romney is trailing. and our polls in florida by point -- florida by 2 points and ohio by a point. he does have some ground to make up but very little. >> i want to be very very clear here. in the rasmussen poll in florida, the president is up by 2, not 10. 2. >> correct. >> bill: and ohio n. ohio the president is up by 1. both within a margin of error a dead heat. >> those polls are just taken over a week ago. they may have shifted in the president's favor, a lot of the numbers have in the last week or so. we are seeing a very close race in those states within the margin of error. these are states that mitt romney absolutely has to win. >> >> bill: when will you have new polling from florida and ohio? >> next week. >> okay. doctor, you have heard i think both rove and morris were pretty -- they made a pretty good case. that the polling we saw today isn't accurate and but it does have a definite effect on the perception of the presidential race. what do you say? >> well, i think karl rove made some good points. i have
in place. what do you make of this movement now on -- by folks on the right, you saw mitt romney earlier this hour trying to make there's a democratic issue? this is something that the president somehow did on his own or just put this on the plate of democrats in congress and not take any sort of -- not -- to say they're not accountable for the votes? >> well, the goal of the sequester was to try to put some pressure on ourselves to address a long-term balanced bipartisan solution to deal with the debt and deficits in this country. as you point out, when we pass the budget control act, that included the sequester, it was a very strong bipartisan vote and the senate and in congress. it was signed off on by the leadership on both sides and both houses. and so, i think this is an effort that we need to follow through on. the goal was never to let the sequester to go into effect, never to do across the board cuts. i don't know anybody who thinks that's a good idea. so what we need to do is roll up our sleeves and come up with a long-term solution that addresses all aspects of the budget, the
to magically right lf t i -os thought it was an interesting -- that sound we played from romney, kind of backing away from his announcement that everybody's tax res are going to go down. it is, i think, an atput math mat kaly impossible. to balance the budget and cut rates you have to close loopholes on middle income earnings which means their taxes go up. >> it's responsive to the effective line in the speech about take two tax cuts and cal er p40 years the hasi republican solution has been a tax cut and david's chart proves the point. years and years ago, decades, when rate was % top earner rate, cut from 70% to 50%, yes, mas a really big differen. w tte' cngm to 35 or 35 to 32 or 32 to 31, you're not getting much bang for your buck. really each incremental piece that you take off from the revenue matters in the budget. i think they're not stup about this, they know tre's not a lot to be gained from saying we g you an extra 3%. they may try to get in front of it or erase it as quickly as possible. >> the bigger issue, as we talk about, putting more money in the pockets of a higher
of opportunity for romney to come back. the only point i'm trying to make is right now, and remember polls are a snapshot of what's happening right now, right now obama clearly is ahead in these key battleground states. that's very significant. it can have a demoralizing impact on a lot of republicans and a lot of republican money from that perspective as you point out. but at the same time, it can make the democrats overconfident. they may decide, you know what, he doesn't need anymore money, he's doing just fine. or i don't have to show up and vote because the president's going to win. so there's a two edged sword to being ahead or behind at this point in the polls. this race is continuing. it's by no means over. anybody who says it's over is being ridiculous. >> and speaking of the '80s, i actually started my career in the '80s, although i love that compliment from you. >> you look much younger than that. >> you can be on every day. thank you, wolf blitzer. >>> the election's close, debates are even closer. the first debate is next wednesday night, cnn special coverage starts 7:00 p.m.
, and they're screeching about how the polls are rigged. romney's people know they're in big trouble, right? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpe
, but there had been signing of trouble there. there were signs of trouble right away. remember when mitt romney went a little rogue himself on the subject of libya and essentially accused the president of treason. that's going way out on limb there. the vice president's job is to go right on that limb with him and cover the president's pack. but he didn't do that. he let mitt romney hang out there on his own. if there's a problem here, i imagine it has to do with ambition. that's what roger simon was touching on. paul ryan was supposed to bring excitement to the romney campaign. instead he brought a lot of pants on fire ratings from the fact checkers. mitt romney was supposed to be paul ryan's ticket to the white house but things aren't going so well and paul ryan is probably thinking i've got a mill stone around my neck. this isn't going to help me for 2016 at all. if there is bad blood between them, that's what it is. they're separate ambitions are not being satisfied by one another. >> certainly that springtime appearance in florida that was secretly recorded is not doing the ticket any faye

. thank you! >> all right. we're watching mitt romney there in springfield, virginia. only 40 days until the election. president obama we're also watching for as well. he's also in virginia, expected to speak in virginia beach moments from now. you see the podium there. virginia, a very important swing state. 13 electoral votes in that state. the recent polls now showing that president obama is slightly, slightly ahead of romney in the state. the last cnn poll of polls for virginia, he was leading 50% to romney's 44%. you might recall back in 2008 president obama won virginia and became the first democrat since 1964, lyndon johnson to actually win that state and that was significant. i'll bring in jim acosta who is traveling with mitt romney. he's at the event talking a little bit about the message we heard from mitt romney. clearly it's important for him to reach the working class. that came in some of the comments he made regarding trade with china. what does he need to do? what does his team think they need to do to make sure he holds on to virginia? >> reporter: suzanne, as you know,
's by far the most important debate, chris. you tell me whether governor romney has the right strategy here. >> it's in politico. we don't know the veracity of it. we don't know whether that's what they mean to do. but we know this. that if you are explaining, you are losing. what governor romney has been doing a lot of is trying to direct the record on president obama. in the sound you just played in that video the president said we know we don't get it right but we don't care. it's cool because it's politics. mitt romney is not going to do anything that shames the president into being a nicer guy or changing the way that he describes mitt romney because remember this has been the most rough, absolutely negative reelection campaign ever run by an incumbent. if mitt romney thinks he can change that by correcting the record he is making a mistake. >> i would say what's happening is what happens in every election. what we saw two weeks ago was the reverse. the obama campaign saying the romney campaign is coming off. you don't want to be on the defensive. what the debates should be about, it's
, the president, i think to do it again. how does the romney campaign respond to that? >> reporter: that's right. if president obama were to win the state of virginia because no democrat had won it since lyndon johnson in 1964, he would be the first democrat to do it twice in a generation. so obviously it is a big challenge for the president to try to win this critical battleground state one more time. that's why mitt romney is in the state today trying to take it away from him. this state, let's be honest about this, is very critical in terms of putting together the electoral map that the romney campaign needs to win this election. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt romney was here just about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts o
it is the romney campaign loses florida, their chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero i think. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a noticeably bigger margin among white working-class voters for the gop candidate. it's not happening. the margins look to be pretty similar to what they were in 2008. so by and large not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. in virginia we see again some demographic change happening there on the right with white working-class going down and white college graduates going up. and again in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would have been to widen the margin that you be candidate was going to get among
's not saying mitt romney has to go further right. he didn't like his point of view necessarily on abortion, but he said if he stuck with rape, incest, life of the mother and skrus pouned his fist -- does that change it? >> no, there's a reason the romney camp has been trying to say this election is about the economy. we heard this during 2010. this is a libertarian argument about it's the economy. about reducing the deficit and debt. virtually every poll. who's better equipped to deal with the deficit and debt. the more they play to the religious right on social issues, the more they risk alienaing these centrist voters. >> did you disagree? >> absolutely. the latest polls show that people trust obama more now with the economy. this economy issue solely is a losing issue for romney as the economy improves, but also it fails to reck thiz people care about other things other than just the economy. >> pastor jeffers, if i may, i was making the distinction about not just the economy, but deficit and debt. so, i appreciate your desire to have your nominee really focus on playing to the base
this handful of swing states are. president obama and mitt romney are following each other from one battleground state to another. on wednesday ohio was their target. >> you probably are aware that there's an election going on right now in ohio. >> i believe you're going to help me win ohio. >> reporter: today it's a quick flight to virginia. >> we're a compassionate people. >> reporter: on wednesday romney tried to convey a more empathetic candidate. >> we have people that are hurting, we have people that are disabled and poor and they need our help and receive our help. we're a charitable people. >> reporter: recent polls shows romney trailing the president on the question of which candidate cares about my needs. but time is running out for governor romney to change voters' minds. early voting is under way in two dozen states. it starts today in iowa and next week in ohio. that has both campaigns stepping up their advertising in key swing states. >> we should measure compassion by how many people can get off of welfare. >> reporter: romney released a new 60 second ad. he talks abo
on the right saying the polls are skewed. they're unfair. here is why republican strategist karl ro who knows polls and elections better than anyone says these polls can't possibly be right. >> think about this. romney and obama get each ughly e same pcentage the republicans and democrats as their ponent. that is to say they carry their base overwhelmingly. romney among independents is winning by three points, so if romney's winning the independents and republicans, do you think in a battleground state like florida, he's nine points down? the answer is no. >> okay. that math doesn't actually work out because according to the florida poll, those who say they're most likely going to vote, 36% say they're democrats, 27% republicans and 33% independents, so as you can see, the math that karl rove laid out doesn't cessarhave to so. ere's ing in our panel h and talk about all of the polling here we do at cnn and howt rks. cnn poll one thing you may have heard is that the polls out there are assuminga higher turnout this election than last. a lot of people say that can't be so there wa so much passi
that governor romney switch that momentum as that voting continues wolf, 40 days right up to election day. >> everyone agrees, john, iowa very much in play right now, right? >> reporter: yes. it's one of the states -- we have nine states we call toss-ups. this is one of them. seven of those nine states allow some form of in person early voting. iowa is still in play, but iowa is one of those states that have drifted a bit in the president's favor. and, again, this is a state where republicans did very well in 2010. they believe they have some energy on the ground. but they've watched the last ten days, wolf, if you talk to them privately, they're not happy with the romney strategy. they're not happy with the romney advertisements. and they think first and foremost he must have a very, very strong debate on the question of which candidate can better handle the economy. they say he must do that in that first week of october to turn the tide here. >> all right. john will be joining us later in "the situation room" as well. thanks, john, very much. >>> today we learned the president plans a f
blow a gasket on the left if romney wins. they're also early voting going on right now. we know that this stuff is not reported to reflect opinion, they're trying to shape opinion with these polls. >> greta: is rush right? are these polls slanted toward democrats and toward president obama? let's bring in our expert panel. steve, first to you. number one, are the polls slanted in number two, the second part of the question, does that suppress the vote? >> look, i think if you're just looking at "the new york times"/cbs poll, you believe everything you see in the polling of florida and ohio today, the results that came out today, yes, i think they oversampled democrats. i don't think there's any question about it. it would mean a record turnout in those states to produce the kinds of results we saw. now that doesn't mean these polls are useless. if there's consistent oversampling inside a poll, like the cbs/"new york times" poll has been, plus eight or nine for democrats, so you can see trends inside of that, even if they're oversampling. so they're not useless, but if that's all
have thought. i k hisroubles in the polling also relate to his byan statement. you know, romney's goi to have to come up with something to combathis with. and thus far his campan doesseem to kno what to do. the shot they're running right romn in the commercial looking athe camera probably is their most effective ad to combat this the president and i both care out pele that my plans will help them. running. ng swing state ad it's >>hat do you think of thi roland? >> the problem is the ad wa portrayed, erick. the prlem is that the words eomingdictly o of mitt romney's mouth. when healls folks ctims, when he talks abo iner of all they want are free fo, housing, thgs along those lives. you're an american out there and you're struggling whe it comes to yo budget and grocerieou are concerned out that. the botm l is mittomney is not resing spificly to this ad. he tried to double downn it what it ds is gives the rc simplut and that's the la tngou need when you're trying to pick up ne, two, three points th you itically need in tse ates. me time though, i want you to respond that ick, but ae
is an absolute democrat. absolutely in the camp and not waiting for the debates and anyone for mitt romney is an absolute republican but you mentioned the break in the race. iowa is one of the swing states broken in the president's favor right now by a few points and anything in the bank is value added but if the dynamic changes and you have more undecided voters out there, what the obama campaign argues is they have time and resources to those people hard core supporters voted. the romney campaign would say that's an exaggeration and they say republicans are more traditional. they pour the resources at the end. this is a growing and an important national trend and it does help you understand and give your test run if you will to your organization on the ground. >> in iowa city for us, mr. magic wall himself, john king. thank you. >>> don't forget as we mentioned, please watch this first presidential debate in denver, colorado. romney versus obama next wednesday 8:00 eastern right here on cnn. >>> just in. news from space. we are just getting word of a pretty big discovery on mars. folks,
mrs. romney's plane in trouble. it went viral to all of us in the media immediately. >> yeah. >> greta: it was terrifying, all these flights are. >> right. >> greta: anyway, it ended well. >> it did. >> greta: i'm going to let you go. i know you have a very busy evening. thank you very much for joining us. i hope you join us again in the next days and weeks. >> thanks, greta. >> greta: come up, rush is really fired up. he says new polls are bogus and you'd be a fool to believe them. what got under rush's skin this sometime? rush will tell you. and donald trump spoke to a christian university this week. what was his message? it was surprising. don't get mad, get even. you might be more surprised by you might be more surprised by how the christian univers two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. you might be more surprised by how the christian univers and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for eve
in europe he will be facing trouble. but we are somewhere right now splitting the difference. >> republican mitt romney's campaign pounced on today's numbers. >> eventually you are going to need an elec ron microscope to detect any growth at all in the obama economy. >> new fox poll shows romney is in the capitalizing. on the question who do you trust to do a better job on the economy, president edges him 47 to 46%. >> if i could sit down with you in living room or around the kitchen table here is what i'd say -- >> he unveils a new informal ad touting his plan and ripping romney. >> gor romney believe -- governor romney believes with bigger tax cut for wealthy and fewer regulation on wall street, all of us will prosper. he'd double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> now the labor department has also revised upward the private sector jobs created by the president to 5.1 million. a hopeful sign that might be pulling the president up in those polls. bret? >> bret: okay, ed. ahh. numbers from wall street were a bit better today. dow gained 72 t
no republican has won the white house without it, and bad news for mitt romney: it's tilting toward president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every t
but first right now some brand new stories and breaking news. jon: zeroing in the on the swing states. dueling campaign events in the same political battleground of virginia. governor romney and president obama both expected to speak there shortly. plus the obama administration insists sanctions are working to keep iran's nuclear ambitions in check. others have serious doubts. what happens if the doubters are right? in the race for the white house do the polls paint a fair picture? is there media bias? our "news watch" panel weighs in. all new, all live is "happening now." jon: welcoming jenna lee back from italy. i have hope you had a good --. jenna: our friends maya and pat had an amazing wedding. congratulations to them. back to work today. jon: big day on the campaign trail for the candidates today. we have every angle covered. touchdown tore football fans. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm jenna lee. first the headline today is that the strike is over. the nfl and the referees union reaching what some are describing as a tentative labor agreement. we'll see if it sticks. this afte
and business background you would expect those numbers to be flipped and certainly for mitt romney to have an edge. he doesn't have an edge on the economy, at least not right now that is tell you why he is trailing in a lot of battleground states. >> shep: president obama and governor romney campaigned in virginia. president was the first won to win that stated. he took aim at governor romney's commented not would to worry about 47% of americans that don't pay income tax and dependent on government and never take personal responsibility for their lives? >> in 2008, 47% of this country did not vote for me. i don't know how many of you out there will be voting for me.
